Do you keep hearing about acronyms that relate to exciting changes and updates in the legal space? Are you unsure what they mean or how they’re connected? What's an AFA? Are our clients demanding more P3 expertise from us? How should I be using my BI or CI tools? Are our partners getting the right ROI for their capital investment? Law practice management can be complex, with a lot of moving parts, each inter-connected and inter-dependent. Without a comprehensive grasp of the dialect, leaders may be left wondering about their role in the management buffet! What got you to the table won’t keep you at the feast. Join the inventors of the P+ Ecosystem™ for an overview of how the various “Ps” are connected and how every organization can benefit from adopting their own combination of ingredients to create their own, maybe even award-winning “Alphabet soup” recipe. A well-run firm, department, office or team that is ready to embrace innovation has a plan that addresses all the moving parts of its ecosystem, from pricing to compensation to training to recruiting to technology.
